stance. chairman of the national republican senatorial committee, john cornyn, called the outrage over mourdock's comments "irresponsible and ridiculous." while senate minority leader mitch mcconnell blamed democrats. we're at the end of an election season here, and i understand each side is looking to make hay out of every comment, but sharing the views of millions of americans that life begins at conception is richard's deeply held personal belief that shouldn't be misconstrued by partisans to imply something it does not. that's at the heart of the is e issue. let's bring in krystal ball, cohost of "the cycle," and susan del percio, strategist and msnbc contributor. great to have both of you with us here tonight. mitch mcconnell's comment cuts to the heart of it here. republicans, do they want to legislate their personal blaefbs on the american people, no matter where the majority of people stand? susan, you're somewhat of a moderate on this issue. will this make a difference, if they push this issue? >> it absolutely will. there has to be room for different opinions within the repu
to respond. >> john cornyn is a very good man and i look forward to working very closely to represent the state of texas and conservative principles. mr. sadler -- you want to ask who john cornyn is supporting. i would encourage you to, because i tell you, he has been campaigning -- >> you will not answer the question. >> i look forward to working with him side-by-side. on the other hand, let me ask you, are you suggesting that you would not vote for a democrat as majority leader? >> i am telling you this. if i was a republican, i would vote for john cornyn. but all your money comes from jim demint and the super pac. that is his biggest competition. we all know that. you will not answer the question. >> jim demint has made it clear he is not running for leadership. what i said, i said i think it would be presumptuous for me to commit to a leadership vote until the election. you showed no hesitancy -- >> we are going to go on. in the next session, they will sort out their leaders in the next session. we are tentatively going to move on to immigration. >> mr. sadler, stopping illegal im
. >> yeah. >> the senatorial committee led by john cornyn, they have stayed away from him. >> i remember that. >> they are under extreme pressure from a lot of powerful people. and they understand, when guys say things like this, they need to be thrown out. but this is what happens when you get guys like mourdock who a lot of mainstream republicans were worried about. >> yeah. mitt romney is in an ad with him. >> i wonder if lugar would be in trouble right now. >> we've seen in modern political history, we've seen parties that allow their extreme elements to dominate the party. we've seen how well that works. the democratic party in the '70s and '80s, that was the truth, the prevailing wisdom. and if this fringe continues to take up so much space, it's going to hurt the republicans for a long time. >> could i just point out one thing? though you're correct about what john cornyn and the republican senatorial committee did with respect to todd akin, they came out and supported mourdock yesterday, full-throated support and no backing away whatsoever. >> not necessarily. we have -- i think
ago. texas senator john cornyn says this is unacceptable, it's a failure, he says, by pentagon leaders to comply with a 2009 law that was supposed to make it easier for our soldiers to vote. guy benson is political editor of town hall.com. hi, guy. >> hey, how's it going? alisyn: senator cornyn expressed his serious concerns about this precipitous drop in requests of absentee ballots by our soldiers overseas. what do you think is going on here? >> that's a very good question, and it's something that we need to find out quickly. as you said, in virginia alone we've seen a 92% drop in requests for absentee ballots, that number is over 50% in terms of the major states like florida, ohio and nevada. so i think there's a lot of people on the political side of this scratching their heads. as you mentioned, senator cornyn and a group of other republicans have shot off a letter to the defense secretary say, hey, it's time for explanations, and what they're really upset about not necessarily, allison, the raw numbers that people aren't requesting as many ballots out in the field, but rather a r
of the campaign is seeking advice from those who have been up there, seeking advice from senator john cornyn, seeking advice from senator kay bailey hutchison, seeking advice from former senator phil gramm, all of whom have given me their insights on how to be effective, how to defend texas. >> is there something you want to learn more about or maybe you think your knowledge base is not where you want it to be? >> i'm drawing on their experience and show them -- i haven't served in the u.s. senate, neither has mr. sadler, i welcome and rely on their experience about the institution, about the individual people in that institution and my intention if and when i'm elected in november is to put my nose down, roll my sleeves up and do the hard work it's going to take to fix these problems. >> mr. sadler, how would you get up to speed and is there a policy area you think you would have to lean on your colleagues? >> foreign policy. we're not privy to the security briefings that senators get. we don't have those things. i've been very measured in my criticisms of -- i've never been critical of mr.
get distance from mourdock, or embrace what he said that if you look at the statement made at john cornyn who's the head of the republican senatorial campaign committee, is a very uncomfortable, i can't get distance from another nominee after we cut off todd akin, but boy, i don't want to get into this thicket at all. then if you throw in states like massachusetts where elizabeth warren at least seems to have pulled out to a small and statistically significant but still not insurmountable lead, in arizona where jeff flake had to go through very late primary in which he was roundly criticized within his own party, and richard carmona, into his own recent gaffe, making a joke about candy crawley in an inopportune moment, but a former bush surgeon general and an iraq war veteran has proven to be a strong candidate. and in nevada with a superior turnout effort of the harry reid machine has kept shelley berkley within striking distance of dean heller, you've got a different kind of contest the democrats are not going, are not likely to win all five of those contests, but everyone that t
in the united states senate. this is richard mourdock, john cornyn, head of the senate campaign committee stood by him. this is richard mourdock who is heart and soul together with todd akin and paul ryan. the three that sponsored this -- this extreme anti-women legislation in the united states congress. >> we're just seeing these points of connection between extremely out there radical fringe tea party driven candidates. he is a tea party-driven candidate in the west way possible that are just inextricably tied with this -- the g.o.p. ticket. and i find it a little disturbing too, that you know, that there's not -- more sensitivity on his part to -- how much -- how deeply he offended people of faith and to suggest that something like was god's intent and for mitt romney to not have the judgment to step back from that and say wait a minute. >> bill: it was a test for romney. he flunked it. it was a test for him to say this could have been a sister soldier moment he could have stood up and said no, no, no, this is
said. and if you look at the statement made by john cornyn who's the head of the republican senator tore y'all campaign committee, it's a very uncomfortable i can't get distance from another nominee after we cut off todd akin but, boy, i don't want to get into this thicket at all. then if you pull out states like massachusetts where elizabeth warren has pulled out to at least a small but not insignificant and insurmountable lead, in arizona where jeff flake had to go through a very late primary in which he was roundly criticized within his own party, and richard carmona until his own recent gaffe making a joke about candy crowley at an inopportune moment, but a former bush surgeon general and iraq war veteran has proven to be a strong candidate. and in nevada where the superior turnout effort of the harry reid machine has kept shelley berkley within striking distance of dean heller, you've got a different kind of contest. democrats are not going to, are not likely to win all five of those contests, but every one that they win means that republicans have to win an extra seat to move
